A Manchester man was charged today with a felony after allegedly killing a dog on March 1, striking the dog "numerous times in the head fracturing the animal's skull and killing the animal," according to Ontario County Sheriff's deputies.
Howard William Frazer, 66, of 4345 Shortsville Road, Lot. 28, killed the dog at his home in the town of Manchester.
Ed McGuigan, director of the Ontario County Humane Society, said the Humane Society was called Monday by a person who said Frazer was telling people what he had done.
The dog was 17 years old and belonged to Frazer's son, said McGuigan. An investigation by the Humane Society led to the charge of aggravated cruelty to animals. McGuigan said the man allegedly killed the dog with a 12-inch crowbar.
Frazer was arraigned Tuesday in Manchester Town Court and sent to Ontario County Jail with bail of $1,500 cash and $3,000 insured bond.
